I have a question with regards to RMI:
Can I use my client program from another computer and access my DBServer (that's using RMI for registry binding) through TCP/IP? I think that's possible right? For example, if I created a DBServer using RMI, I can access this DBServer from another computer (say in another country) using TCP/IP(by entering IP address). I haven't tried this out yet but I will test it when I get the chance. Just wanted to know what RMI can/cannot do.

Hi Hung,
Yes, Hung you can do that. After all that's the whole point of distributed programming.

I agree. Here's the link:
